RUSH: And there are a number of elements that have to be used in combination, and sometimes talking about them destroys the magic behind them. It’s like, have you ever heard a couple comedians talking about the business of comedy? It’s just not funny. It’s the most boring thing. It’s too inside baseball. Now, this is radio. This is media. This requires an audience. There is a show biz aspect to it. However, my critics sometimes, “Well, he’s just an entertainer,” and they will say that as a means of discrediting me. “Why, he’s entertainer. He’s not even believing what he says. You can’t take him seriously.” Other times —
CALLER: I don’t believe that at all. I believe that you definitely believe strongly what you say.
CALLER: I also understand that there is a level, like you said, of show business and entertainment. You’re not gonna get people to listen to you if you’re boring. But the question is, are you like this? Has it carried over into your daily life, outside the radio station?
RUSH: You’re basically asking, am I always this interesting, is really what you want to know.
CALLER: No, boastful, not are you always this interesting. I’m sure you’re always interesting.
RUSH: No, in fact, I’m probably one of the quietest, speak only when spoken to, and probably one of the most humble, unassuming people that you would ever meet. And my guess is, in truth, that you would be disappointed.
